Presenter: Comtree/Kyzen
Topic: It’s all about the Dirt! – Cleaning No-Cleans and Other Contaminants
Time: 11:30am, Lower/Actors Room

Details: Manufacturers today are cleaning not just to remove WS flux residue.  We will explore the concerns of leaving other contaminants, and especially no-clean flux residue, on modern electronic assemblies.  Many such devices incorporate Bottom Termination Components (BTCs); which limit access of the cleaning fluid to the soil. Understand how to clean all pcb assemblies and provide general process conditions that will successfully remove flux residue and other contamination from under and around modern BTC devices.

Topic: Wireless Interference Hunting Seminar
Time: 2:30pm, Main Foyer

Details: Wireless technology is so widespread that the frequency spectrum can be quite crowded. Almost every portion of available frequency spectrum is shared by multiple services and/ or applications, requiring practical, effective control of interference. To eliminate interference, it must first be isolated and identified. In this one hour seminar we will discuss the three most common types of interference, and how to choose the right spectrum to help identify and help locate sources of interference.
